It tells the hard reality of being dragged from trains, freezing in the wind while hanging between cars, and of being run out of towns by the local cops.

Jack Kersdale is a self made man born of missionary stock in Hawaii. He is smart and, as we learn early in the story, undoubtedly brave. So how could a beautiful woman waving goodbye from a departing ship bring him to white knuckle terror? Well, that is what the story is about. Jack London was said to "know the Hawaiians better than we know ourselves." But he also committed the sin of writing about the elephant in the room.

This short story was part of a collection published after Jack London's death in 1916. The story is set in Hawaii in the year 1880. I've broken it into two parts. In the first we are introduced to Hardman Pool portrayed as a haole chief lording it over his retainers who are both natives and relatives. Knowing London's sense of humor I sense some of this was a parody of stories written by others. In part two we hear Kumuhana's harrowing tale of being selected as a moe pu'u to be sacrificed to...
